June dairy month has been celebrated for over 75 years and continues to make an impact on promoting the dairy industry and dairy products. Dairy month originally started back in 1937 to promote drinking milk and increase demand when cows were turned out to pasture and milk production was at a peak. This tradition has continued on throughout the years in forms of promotional events such as parades, breakfast on the farm and local stores, 4-H, and FFA clubs offering free milk and ice cream. These are great ways to promote June dairy month. Here at WS Ag Center we are offering free ice cream so come on in!
